Error (Boston Globe, H.D.S. Greenway, 3/8/02 & 3/15/02 ): “The fall of Balata” — a refugee camp — “will break the Palestinian resistance.” (Brigadier General Ephraim Eitam of the Israeli Army) (op-ed, 3/8/02) The speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council, Ahmed Qurei, was wounded in his car [at a checkpoint] for reasons that have not been explained. . .
Correction ((3/22/02)): In a March 8 column I said that a Palestinian politician, Ahmed Qurei, had been wounded at an Israeli checkpoint. I am happy to report that none of the eight bullets Israeli soldiers fired onto his car hit him. Also, in a March 15 column, the correct title for Ephraim Eitam is brigadier general, retired.
